Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Holy Totalitarianism

Checks and balances—we fallible humans need three branches of government to hold each other accountable in order to avoid totalitarianism:  legislative, executive and judicial.  But in God’s kingdom, He does it all:

For the LORD is our judge,
the LORD is our lawgiver,
the LORD is our king;
it is he who will save us.  (Isaiah 33:22)

Why is that?  Because…

As king, He is all powerful.
As lawgiver, He is all good.
As judge, He is all wise.

I can trust a God like this!  No matter what.
